Thanks to Honkeybra for this sexy brew. Crushed with Jakebra to celebrate my one year anniversary on RateBeer. Pretty nice nose of fruits, tartness, and funk. Flavor is even better and makes the mouth water. Very fruity and funky flavor. Really dug it.

Bottle shared by Adamn...thanks so much! Reddish/orange pour wtih a a light head. Tons of fruit up front with funky tartness and earth tones. Vinous notes are evident in the nose and on the tongue. Fruity but sour. But not crazy sour. Dry and rather good. Thanks adam!

22oz bottle. Pours a cloudy blood orange with an off white head that left some spotty lacing. Nose is kind of hard to pinpoint, I get lots of tart cherries, various berry fruits and a light funk. Flavor starts medium sour then turns a little sweeter as the beer warms and gets to breathe. Finishes with an interesting buttery-ness I’ve not seen very often with the sours I’ve tried, unless this is the first time I noticed it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[300th rating] aroma of light yeast funk and subdued but bright citrus. appearance is burnished orange, nearly the color of, well...oak. flavor is ultra tart. blackberries are definately not out in the open, which i appreciate: they served to fuel the yeast but were certainly consumed as no horrible ’bad lambic’ sweetness remains. flavor is just plain sour and even a bit peppery. the only other flavor element that comes to mind is of a vinous quality, marked by the super dry finish. so dry in fact that is burns the throat for just a moment then passes and leaves cleanly.

Tried at DLD courteous of a random beer fan. Poured light red-brown with a nice white head. Had a fruity aroma. The sour taste was pleasant, gave the beer a real good finish.

Bottle via honkeybra, thanks dude! 30th rating of this beer, shared with dalekliz and my girlfriend, on the night of the lack of Lost, and as such is dedicated to Juliet on the show. Pours an amazingly beautiful with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet and fruity and a touch vinous. Taste is sweet, tart, rich juicey and acidic, with some clear vinous notes. I gotta say this isn’t perfect but its damn damn damn tasty, and as liz says its ridiculously pretty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Binny’s in Orland Park, Cook County, Illinois, in the United States of America: It pours a hazy amber bosy with an egg-shell head that quickly reduces to a ring. Spotty lacework.. The aroma is toffee, berries, wet straw, and a tart Brett funk. Sharply acidic in the taste, it also has a touch more fruitiness, some white vinegar, and a bit of rust. Dry tart/sour finish with some underlying berry sweetness. Quite nice and will age well.

Bottle, Jan. 09. Opaque ruby-red grapefruit color with a fine pinkish head. Toffee, butterscotch, and tangy berry nose. Funky, acidic undertones, kefir? Flavor is more one dimensional and much more what I was expecting. Acidic with the wood and blackberries coming through nicely. Soft but lively carbonation. Abrupt, soda like finish. Very nice.

Pink hued amber color with a diminished, again pink tinted taupe color. Caramel and tart cherry scents. I somehow feel transported to a carnival with caramel corn and cherry slushy in hand. Light and airy feel. Hints of malt in the front, but quickly diverted to the side. Tart cherries and berries dominate the middle. Lightly acidic in the finish. Quite clean linger, with a hint of iron. Some wheat and malt sweetness wander about at times. This seems to beg for a hot summer day. To bad all the global warming "nut" want to spoil this for me.
